Chef/owner Rene Fernandez takes diners to Central and South America, with stops in the Caribbean, with his recipes: The menu includes refined versions of Brazilian curry, Cuban ropa vieja (a stew of shredded beef and veggies), Argentine-style steaks, and plantain fritters from the islands. The boldly decorated restaurant is fun and creative, with colorful folk-art chandeliers (from its neighbors at Garcia Art Glass), and casual indoor/outdoor spaces. On weekends, live music from 10pm to 2am gets everyone moving ($5 cover), and margaritas, mojitos, and more start flowing.
